War is the spectacular and bloody projection of our everyday living. We precipitate war out of our daily lives; and without a transformation in ourselves, there are bound to be national and racial antagonisms, the childish quarrelling over ideologies, the multiplication of soldiers, the saluting of flags, and all the many brutalities that go to create organized murder

Scenes of Psychic Devastation in Wolfen (1981)

RND/ to consider scenes of urban anxiety / psychic devastation in wolfen 1981

dewey/ ir keep in touch?
eddie/ with what – guy next door/ ir mother – with what?
dewey/ with mother nature
eddie/ sure..
– scene from Wolfen

while generally underwhelming – wolfen 1981 features remarkable scenes of urban anxiety/ utter psychic devastation – new york considered as existential bomb site

naturally twin towers [1] feature in movie

films main shocking aspect – violent gap between pale city rich / brown skinned poor

in which such images mirror sense of civil war / ruin seen / felt in films like good / bad / ugly or el topo – which makes n simultaneously western / shallow cinematic experience of deep western void [2]
